new Assata Shakur book presents the thoughts and opinions of Assata Shakur in
her own words. While her autobiography tells her life story up to the point
she arrived in Cuba, this book starts with her in Cuba.
Assata Shakur is a former political prisoner who has been living in exile in
Cuba since 1984. She has been a political activist for most of her life.
Although the U.S. government has done everything in its power to criminalize
her, she is not a criminal nor has she ever been one. If you are interested
in learning the views of Assata Shakur, this is a must have.
"If you're deaf, dumb,
and blind to what's happening in the world, you're under no obligation to do
anything. But if you know what's happening and you don't do anything but sit
on your ass, then you're nothing but a punk" - Assata Shakur
